(UNDATED) - Bullying has been in the spotlight recently after a number of teenagers have committed suicide, the victims of bullying.

Indianapolis Doctor Greg Sipes says more boys are bullied than girls, and more likely to commit suicide because of it.

Dr Sipes say more gay teens are also being bullied.
